    Australia MSM fake news?
    I am shocked!

    “Australia – contrary to its Crocodile Dundee image – has some of the whiniest, most self-righteous and interfering lefties in the world.”

    A symptom of our own version of Dutch Disease – too many Strayans detached from economic reality thanks to redistributed wealth from the industries which they want to shut down.

  3. How unusual for Australia, an actual scientific article with accurate analysis of cause and effect.I have read the rubbish on our news websites and listen to the garbage on climate change being the one and only cause of every earthly thing on the entire planet. One thing I have always wondered about is why oil is called a “fossil fuel”. Surely oil is a product of our planet like gold, iron, copper, diamonds etc. However getting back to the superb article on Breitbart News and being an avid reader of JoNova, I cannot understand why Australians are so gullible and naive. I have never been able to comprehend how people are so brainwashed about the climate with all the bogus doom and gloom prophesies that NEVER came to pass. Nor can I understand how anyone can believe the BoM on any temperature or prediction when they can’t even predict accurately the weather in any given week, let alone predict what will happen in 2100. It is also a widely known fact they constantly change data to suit the climate models plus they have never, ever admitted that changing the location of gauges have a profound effect on temperatures. Above that of course the Communists/greens are trying to worm their way out of any responsibility, as usual. It will be interesting to see if there is any jail time for the arsonists as well, or just a slap on the wrist, then have everyone blame climate change.

    The article’s comments are great.

    Dontcha love it when pissants take puny propaganda advantage of a miserable situation? All they needed was a few tits on the page to cap it off.

  6. Roger

    We need Delingpole on Sunrise, 7:30, Q&A, etc. etc..

    Otherwise he’s just preaching to the Breitbart choir.

    Yes, the Greens and lefties have been quite disgraceful and exploitative during this bushfire season.

    Go say that around East Gippsland, troll.

    So Delingpole deals with temperature trends by presenting temperature data from a single site that doesn’t show warming. But if you go to the very same source by the very same people who measured and published the data he quote from Walgett, the longterm warming trend is absolutely clear.

    He (and you) can’t have it both ways. If the graphs like on this page are not true why on earth is he using multiple graphs in his article from the same source?

    Indeed, Dave. I’ll be watching the court cases with interest.

  11. Lee

    You never hear of arsonists being jailed, so I won’t be holding my breath.

    As we speak. Victoria, for the second time in a week, is blanketed by thick bushfire smoke and fog horns are sounding on Port Phillip Bay to stop cargo ships crashing into each other.

    What sort of Malthusian trash thinks this situation — caused by the abandonment of winter burning off by ideological greenscum in the public service — is better because it protects plants ahead of animals and hated humans?

    The Greens are responsible for this. They are a death cult.

    I have never been able to comprehend how people are so brainwashed…

    To be brainwashed a person must have a functioning brain to start with.

    Dan – you’ll note the selected reference period for anomalies in those BOM charts is 1960 to 1990 – why that particular period do you think? Also, presumably the analysis is based on BOM’s adjusted data set which coincidently adjusts down the historic temperature records whilst adjusting up the more recent records – convenient no?

  15. The BigBlueCat

    Watching the video on the Brietbart page, I am struck by how nonsensical the climate change activists sound given they are all wrapped up against the cold and rain in mid-January!

    Climate change can only be demonstrated by long term trends, not short-term weather events. The BOM-adjusted historical data is a nasty piece of work that doesn’t help anyone.

    So, they want ScoMo sacked, do they? A few questions: Who do they think is going to do that? Who do they think his replacement will be? Why are they yelling at people in the Bourke Street Mall?

    They’re all piss and wind.

    If you can’t understand the difference between New South Wales and Australia, there’s no hope for you.

    We need Delingpole on Sunrise, 7:30, Q&A, etc. etc..

    He did a radio interview with JC’s old school chum (Faine) about 8 or 9 years ago.

    Delingpole did so well that the ABC will never have him back.

    Previous reviews, audits and royal commissions into bushfires in Victoria concluded that preventative burning of 5% of the bush annually will reduce the severity of bushfires.
    Burning of 5% of the bush annually in South Western Australia since 1961 has led to no major bushfires and no deaths in that time.
    The people managing the forests know this and did not undertake the recommended preventative burning, so they must bear responsibility for the damage caused by the bushfires.
    Talk about preventative burning not being a panacea is misleading, no one says it will be, but previous reports concluded that the only way to reduce the impact of bushfires is preventative burning.

    from Walgett, the longterm warming trend is absolutely clear.

    Fukn Walgett?
    Try the Satellite data for the rock heap.

    Has the Victorian government implemented all or any of the recommendations from the previous bush fire inquiries? Can anyone point me to a list of what has and hasn’t been done?

    dan – Delinpoles use of a single site was bullshit, but you only have to read some of Jo Nova’s notes on the BOM records to understand that their long term adjusted numbers are complete fiction.

    But PM Morrison seems to have fallen for it.

    Has he consulted the Coalition cabinet at all in his rush to get new policy statements into the press? Is there any considered Coalition balance in these statements at all?

    Or are we seeing another Tunbull-like move to the left that destroyed centre-right confidence in the Liberals?

    egg: I have actually been in the fire line. What about you? Or maybe you are just a knee jerk?

    Skip – Your reputation makes me skeptical.

    “The current furor about an alleged connection between climate change, CO2 emissions, and Australian fires finds no support in the scientific literature. According to scientists, rising CO2 concentrations reduce fire ignition and burned area. Further, both global-scale and Australian fires were far more pervasive during the colder Little Ice Age.’

    And he didn’t even mention Black Saturday 2009 with the largest loss of life recorded or link to this Wikipedia article “Bushfires in Australia” with a chronological listing (a long way down the page).

    Quite reasonable actually.

    You choose to post under a pseudonym, which is your right.

    But given your concealment of your identity, why should anyone take at face value your tales of your own heroism?

    How do we know you’re not a 19 year old low grade rent boy from Darlinghurst?

    Tim: I have discovered that social media is no place to have an identifiable presence. It seems there are some extremely angry, irrational and abusive people about who are quite happy to take their hangups to extreme lengths. I’m also quite happy to maintain personal relations with people I can speak to face to face.

    True.

    The suicide of a young conservative activist just hours after he ­attracted a storm of online abuse for leading a protest against a drag queen reading event for children has ­supercharged debate over the use of social media as a weapon to ­attack political opponents.

    Wilson Gavin, 21, was openly gay but vehemently committed to conservative causes such as the ­monarchy and opposition to same-sex marriage.

    Absolutely fine, but that just corroborates my point – you shouldn’t criticise stackja for not uncritically swallowing at face value every claim about themselves made by Mr Nom de Plume of No 1 Alter Ego Street, Pseudonymville.

  32. Elderly White Man From Skipton

    Tim: I think it’s sad that he can’t figure it out for himself. He does not need me to corroborate anything.
